I believe it was an editorial in National Review that said the trouble with sophomores is that they tend to be sophomoric. I’m inclined to give everyone a pass for what they did in college, and I think that most people are of the same mind, especially when it was so long ago it was […]

A nineteen-year-old boy is going to lose his virginity as an art project in a homosexual act with a friend of his in front of an audience. He will ask spectators about their takeaways after he has sex with his friend, particularly focusing on if the audience witnessed things change between the two partners–though some […]

Marga Krumins, running against State Representative Bill Kramer in Waukesha, came out of the closet to announce that she’s a lesbian. Nobody in Kramer’s Assembly District will give give a damn and she will lose the election just the same as if she was a married heterosexual woman like the last two candidates Kramer easily […]

It’s official: Anderson Cooper has ruled out becoming a Scientologist. In an e-mail to Andrew Sullivan, Cooper took the “brave” step of announcing that he is gay. (In other news, Sullivan is a wacko conspiracy theorist. Who knew?) Cooper wrote, The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be […]

We know that we can’t ever suggest that minorities are ever less evolved than whites. It’s just plain racist. But cartoonist Stuart Carlson didn’t let that interfere with his moment of white liberal superiority. So was our first African American President the lesser-evolved caveman before he changed his position on gay marriage? Was he the […]

When asked by Rolling Stone who he likes to read, President Barack Obama praised conspiracy-theorist Andrew Sullivan: There are a handful of blogs, Andrew Sullivan’s on the Daily Beast being an example, that combine thoughtful analysis with a sampling of lots of essays that are out there. I’ve written about Sullivan before in this space. […]

Milwaukee Magazine’s Bruce Murphy disagrees with me regarding the complaint against Brian Pierick. Murphy writes, Conservative blogger James Wigderson takes issue with the complaint of child enticement, saying it “appears that Pierick had no way of knowing the boy was 17, not 18 or 19 as the boy claimed.” I read it differently, as the […]

As B. Daniel Blatt points out at the Gay Patriot blog, some mother sends her 8-year-old up to say something to Michelle Bachmann and we’re all supposed to praise the supposed precociousness of the child instead of criticizing the mother for not having the guts to make the statement herself. It is legitimate to ask […]

In response to criticism from Emily Mills, Jack Craver in the comments in Isthmus makes one more attempt at a defense for his unethical rumor mongering (discussed here, here and here) by falling to the standards of the Shepherd Express: It was a cover story the SE ran in 1996. The title was “Closed Closet: […]

We previously discussed Jack Craver’s blog post lowering the ethical standards of Isthmus* and the double standard revealed by his blog post. Now we have Craver’s response. Craver at Isthmus’ website tries to defend his post attempting to “out” Senator Herb Kohl with this great standard, In explaining why I didn’t think Baldwin’s open homosexuality […]
